Hi! I’m Elizabeth. Small business enthusiast, creative force, and mom to 7 excellent children.

As a child I volunteered at a living history museum and went on to co-direct the educational programs there as an adult.

I also have home educated my own children for the last eleven years and taught at a local co-op for two years… so the idea of bringing hands-on history enrichment activities to your family is both very natural and very exciting for me! As homeschooling families know, textbooks are great, but nothing beats hand-on learning activities!

Thank you for supporting my family business and allowing me to share the learning that I love.


Hi! I’m Stephanie. My passion for history began at an early age, sparked by my American Girl doll and books.

In college, I majored in history, and then went back to school for a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education.  I spent eight years in various classrooms: a Montessori preschool, substitute teaching every grade K-12, and finally two years teaching fifth grade. I enjoyed finding just the right curriculum and resources for my students. Now, with History Unboxed, I develop learning resources that take students and teachers beyond textbooks, and I find that very exciting.

I have worked on the farm at a local historic home, educating the public about farm life in the eighteenth century. I also do living history as a hobby and dabble in spinning, weaving, and homesteading.

I’m now a mom of four and have spent the past several years as a home educator myself.

My name’s David. I’m 49 and work as a computer programmer and freelance artist.

I’ve always enjoyed comics and art in general, and history is one of the things I enjoy reading. It’s been really fun to learn about a new piece of history each month and watch as my two sons get excited over what I’m drawing.

With History Unboxed, my art helps history come alive through textbook style resources as well as the fun coloring sheets and other learning materials.
